1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced

1 (16 ounce) can diced tomatoes- I use roasted, diced tomatoes

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander seed- I use fresh cilantro instead
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1 (15 ounce) can white beans- I use white kidney beans

salt and ground black pepper to taste

Heat oil, and cook onion, bell pepper (if using) and garlic until soft.
